High PSI Wastegates??

Where does one buy an external adjustable wastegate that is adjustable from say 30 psi up to 70-80 psi
Cant seem to find anything over about 15 psi
Can I just buy one of those and put a bigger spring in it? Or is the housing too weak as well?
Thoughts?
Thanx
Ken

depending on what you want to do, a 15psi wastegate will be fine for your application. What you need to do is run one line from the manifold to the bottom side of the wastegate actuator and run another line from the manifold through pressure regulator to the top side. Then if you have a 15psi spring you set the pressure regulator to 15psi lower than the pressure you want to start the wastegate opening. Basically you will have equal pressure on the top and bottom of the wastegate actuator until the pressure regulator starts limiting the pressure to the top side.

Here is a diagram of what I am talking about....
